No sooner had I finished my last post on the dreadful, costly effects of Obamacare did I find more Obamacare bad news. More doctors say they plan to retire early thanks to the rotten law.

Another 55 percent of surveyed doctors believe others will scale back hours because of the way medicine is changing, but the survey didn’t elaborate greatly on how it was changing. Three-quarters think the best and brightest may not consider a career in medicine, although that is an increase from the 2011 survey result of 69 percent.

Any time you hear talk of a “new normal” you know what they really mean is “ongoing misery,” and it’s always thanks to progressive policies.

Thanks for nothing to the people who voted these menaces into power.
